Omar Ceesay

My name is Omar Ceesay. I grew up in the urban areas of Serrekunda. I am an educated teacher and have been working for many years before i entered the UTG to study political science.  I would like to work for the government to begin with and than hopefully be self-emplyed. If hard to get job I can  always take up teaching at a higher level since this education will qualify me for high school and university. I would like to serve my country and not having  to depend on anyone because I am disabled. Education is a tool for empowerment. I want to give back to the country and the younger generation. The country did a lot for me.

 

Bachelor of arts and science:  Political science January 2017

 I am currently pursuing a postgraduate program in International Relations and Diplomacy at the University of the Gambia. Right now, that too is almost over as I have completed the first phase. This consisted of coursework on 13 modules and I’m now busy doing the second phase which comprises the research work (or thesis writing) and which shall conclude the entire program in March 2019.

All the while, I live in my family house in Bundung, near Serekunda, not far from the capital Banjul.I live with my mother and sister, together with my half brothers and their mother too. We are a low income family that manage to live by pooling our meagre resources together. My little sister picked up a job as a State Registered Nurse barely two years ago and she contributes to the family a lot, and my mother does petty trading and earns just enough to buy toilet and laundry soap. As for me myself, I’m hoping to get a well paying job with my Masters degree at a government or private sector or even with an international organization by which I shall be able to do a lot more and live a decent and happy life with my family.

I am happy to let you know that I concluded a successful defence of my Masters thesis on Friday. I’m therefore set to graduate with a Masters degree in International Relations and Diplomacy in February.
